At the end of the workshop, results of the discussions will be summarized. The workshop proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series IEEE CS will be distributed at the workshop.
Paper submissions

We are soliciting original and unpublished contributions including regular and short papers. Regular papers must be accompanied by an abstract summarizing the contribution the paper makes to its field. Maximum regular paper length is 12 pages in the LNCS format and these papers will be included in the proceedings. Short papers should be four pages at most and will be included in the handout available at the workshop. Authors must explicitly indicate at the time of submission whether they would like their paper considered for the demo sessions. Submission of a paper involves a commitment that, if accepted, one or more authors will attend and participate in the workshop. The manuscript, complete with illustrations and an abstract, must be sent as a PDF file following instructions that will be posted on the web site.

Nara is a beautiful ancient "UNESCO World Heritage" city in Japan. It was the first permanent capital of Japan, established in 710 AD, and it is full of historic treasures, including some of Japan's oldest Buddhist temples. Nara is about 1.5 hours distance by bus from Kansai Airport. The workshop will be held in the Nara Prefectural New Public Hall located in the center of Nara National Park. Authors will have the privilege of making their presentations at the impressive "Noh Theatre" (see picture, right), designed for performances of the Japanese classical musical drama style, "Noh"
